Antique Plaster Effects

artSparx has created a 3 stage step-by-step tutorial series. Series 1 begins with basic plaster application, our 2nd series illustrates antique glazing and plaster distressing methods, culminating in the final fresco simulation series 3, hand-painted elements. You can complete each tutorial as a finish and style in it's own right. Or, depending on your interests and style needs, combine the tutorials to achieve the hand-painted fresco appearance that will bring your environment to life.
 

Tuscan Style

Design Style Feature

Tuscan style evolved through layers of history, taking cues from the earliest Etruscan metal craft and pottery, and of course, from the sumptuous world of the Italian Renaissance. In Tuscany one finds frescoes, cracked and worn by time, still vibrant with original pigment, depicting ancient deities and the decadence of the late Roman empire.

Ideal for use on stucco and plaster treatments.

Interior & Exterior Surfaces

For use on: Exterior and interior walls, plaster effects and stucco treatments

Velatura


A compatible interior/exterior glaze, Velatura is a reliable medium for faux finishing. It is a silicone/mineral based glaze, diluted by water, that reacts amazingly with aggregates and textures. Applicable by brush or other faux tools, Velatura glaze creates delicate tones and transitions in a wide variety of saturation and opacity. Experimenting with dilution is the key to successful finishing with Velatura.

Velatura is an ideal glazing medium for mineral based plaster and stucco effects. In order to preserve certain application systems, such as a mineral based system, we often recommend a finishing mineral glaze such as Velatura. This breathable silicone/mineral based glaze will not create a layer of skin over the texture, a potentially negative approach for long term preservation. So we've categorized Velatura as a mineral faux glaze, compatible with other mineral products and surfaces.

Another example, Velatura is often used as the finishing glaze for the Travertine Tile effect. Absorbing into the texture as would a stain, while maintaining a porous and breathable surface after curing, Velatura is quite unique in this sense. Allowing moisture to escape, and preventing surface coat peeling or flaking, it completes a mineral based finishing system. Inherently, mineral paints and glazes do not flake or peel.

Aluminum Leaf


Dutch Gold or
composition leaf


Aluminum Leaf imitates the illusion of genuine Silver, at a fraction of the cost. Each individual sheet is bigger and easier to handle then its genuine counter part.

Purchase Aluminum Leaf
Purchase Genuine Silver Leaf

The same applies for 'Dutch Gold', or 'Composition Leaf'. But due to the large brass content, this imitation gold must have a sealer applied to prevent tarnishing, unlike genuine gold leaf.
